300+ State Employees Could be Affected by Govt Shutdown

Posted: Updated:

A little more than 300 state employees will likely be impacted by the ongoing federal government shutdown.

In a note to reporters Monday, Governor Bob McDonnell's Chief of Staff Martin Kent said hundreds of positions funded at least in part by federal dollars will likely go on furlough or part-time status. Kent also said critical state operations can be absorbed in the short term.

These early estimates refer only to state employees, and do not include the tens of thousands of federal civilian workers in Virginia affected by the shutdown.
